This magnificent example of a classic double stout delivers a velvety-smooth palate of dry, burnt flavours - complemented by roast, cocoa and coffee notes. Black, creamy and delicious; it is a Shepherd Neame masterpiece.

Russo (1685) - Campinas, BRAZIL - APR 16, 2014
Deep Black with a small off-white head that keeps a lacing just for while. Aroma is roasted malt and coffee. Flavor is like aroma with more bitterness sense. Light to medium carbonation and medium body with a bitter finish.

Smells chocolate and bit hops. Great thick head. Tastes bitter and coffee, bit chocolate. Dry and lingering mouthfeel. Good old English Stout :) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

larsga (6218) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 29, 2014
Medium beige head. Clear dark brownish red body. Earthy soy sauce aroma with roasty sooty notes. Dry roasty sooty soy sauce taste with chocolatey earthy notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dry roasty earthy licorice aftertaste with mineraly honey notes. Excellent! Subtle, full of flavour, and highly drinkable. (0.5l bottle, wine monopoly web order.)

Bottle at the East India Arms, Fenchurch St, London. Shepherd Neame pub. Black in colour with a small tan head. Aroma of roasted chocolate, coffee and hops. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, rich, slightly dry finish and rather good overall...

Nice black stout with small head. Sweet malty smell. Bitter long-lasting aftertaste. Too much iron, tested on skin. What a shame!

Beer4000 (4476) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 22, 2014
500 ml bottle. Clear, dark brown almost black body with a small beige head. Pleasant aroma of dark, moderate roasted malt, hint of coffee, liquorice and some dry fruit. Flavor is sweet, moderate roasted dark malt, some bitterness and a hint of coffee. Well balanced body and average in aftertaste. A nice, classic dry stout.

Zarkam (422) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 16, 2014
500ml bottle from Tallin, dark coffee colour, medium frothy mostly vanishing light brown head, fair lacing. Roasty aroma of plums, chocolate, coffee and herbs. Taste is initially moderately bitter with a bit of sweetness and acidity, turning into a long bitter finish with a slightly acetic and burnt feel. Medium body, somewhere between oily and watery texture, lively carbonation. Not a bad dark beer, could’ve had a bit more depth in aroma and the body felt quite light for the style.

Poured a very dark red, thin tan coloured head. Not too much aroma but very good flavour. Medium bitterness, coffee, and roasty. Thinnish mouthfeel with light carbonation. Very sessionable.
